Nature's Weed Eaters

The newest addition to the animals at Natick Community Organic Farm came two days ago, in the mail. These chicks will be housed under heat lamps in one of the barn stalls for a few weeks. I'll be feeding them weeds with the kids in my gardening classes, and we'll watch them grow. Public is also welcome to come and visit them there. Soon, they'll be let into an outdoor pen to forage for themselves. There are oodles of other baby animals to visit on the farm right now, including lambs, goat kids, piglets and rabbits.

If there's one thing better than visiting gardens, it's talking about them. . .thanks for joining the conversation!
